Billy Bush, Donald Trump

Some of Hollywood's most recognizable names are taking to Twitter to share their thoughts in the wake of an extremely graphic conversation between Donald Trump, Billy Bush and several others leaking online.

The Washington Post obtained the footage, which shows the then-Access Hollywood, now-Today show co-host chatting with the Republican presidential nominee on the set of Days of Our Lives and using extremely vulgar language while discussing women.

The two were talking on hot microphones before they taped a segment about Trump's appearance on the famous soap opera.

Trump is overheard telling Bush and several others about a failed attempt to seduce an unnamed woman, saying, "I moved on her and I failed. I'll admit it. I did try and f--k her. She was married."

He continued, "And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I'll show you where they have some nice furniture.'"

The businessman turned politician then told the group, "I'm automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."

A voice that sounds like Bush's then says, "Whatever you want." Trump replies, "Grab them by the p---y, you can do anything."

"This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course—not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended," Trump said in his issued apology, but took to Twitter later to also release a video apology.

At present time, Bush has yet to release a statement on his Facebook page. While it was reported earlier that he had deleted his Twitter page in the wake of today's leak, he appears to have deleted the account over the summer amid the Ryan Lochte Olympics scandal. In May of this year, Bush was made the co-anchor of Today's female-friendly 9 a.m. hour.

Hillary Clinton has already responded to the leak, tweeting, "This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president." Clinton and Trump are expected to be face-to-face again, this Sunday, at the second presidential debate.
